Join a Campaign

Free and Quality CUNY Now: Expand ASAP ASAP!


To succeed, CUNY students need:

  • Free tuition

  • Individualized advising and faculty mentoring

  • Free MetroCards

  • Free textbooks


There is already a program that provides these things – ASAP (Accelerated Study in Associate Programs) and ACE (Accelerate Complete Engage).

ASAP for all is a campaign to strengthen and expand the ASAP and sibling ACE program to all students, ensuring all students have free tuition, free MetroCards, free textbooks and individualized advice and faculty support.
